  • Six NBA games grace the board for Thursday April, 29th 2021
  • One of the most fun ways to get into the action is with player prop bets
  • See available player props for the top players taking to the floor tonight within the story below

The NFL draft is tonight, but bettors shouldn’t forget that the NBA is giving us six games to wet our beaks. Of the six, only one is on national television – but it’s a good one. NBA TV has the fist place Brooklyn Nets traveling to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana to take on the Indiana Pacers.

At the moment, the Pacers are wounded and fighting for their playoff lives. They will no doubt be looking to atone for the 133-112 beating they took last time out against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Since there are six games on the board, the prop market is flooded with player props. There are two in particular that could be diamonds in the rough. Scroll down to see some of the props that are available as well as two that stand out the most.

As of publish time, there were no props available for the Mavericks, Pelicans or Nuggets.

Odds as of April 29th

Bombs Away

Kevin Durant is back and so are the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are currently in the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and will be getting James Harden back shortly for a playoff run. Tonight they take on the mash unit Indiana Pacers. They have had trouble defending the three-point line recently and that is an issue when Kevin Durant is coming to town.

Over the last three games, only four teams in the NBA have allowed opponents to shoot a higher percentage from beyond the arc than Indiana. On the year they are 22nd, so they are declining in the metric.

In his last 10 games, Durant has scored 60% of his points from three-point land. Over his last five games, Durant has connected on at least three three-pointers in three of them. In one of those games, he only played four minutes – and still hit two three-balls.

This one has blowout potential as the Nets are favored by nine points. If the Nets are in fact blowing the Pacers out, it is likely that Durant is having a big night. He could easily hit three trays in only three quarters of work.

  • The Pick: Durant OVER 2.5 Three-Pointers Made (+130)

Porter Jr. Can Drain the Three

With John Wall being shut down for the season, Kevin Porter Jr should get all the run he can handle. He will be matched up with the Milwaukee Bucks which means one thing; three-ball time. One thing that is noticeable about Porter Jr, he can take advantage as the kid has range.

On the season, only two teams have seen opponents attack with more three-point attempts than the Milwaukee Bucks. On average, opponents jack up 38.6 three-point attempts per night against them. That bodes well for Porter Jr tonight.

In his last three games, Porter Jr has taken at least seven three-pointers and has connected on a minimum of three in two of the games. In the lone game where he failed to drill three 3s, he went 2-8.

The volume should be there tonight for Porter Jr and at +148, the price is right for him to hit at least three three-pointers tonight.

  • The Pick: Porter Jr OVER 2.5 Three-Pointers Made (+148)
